Decoherence may involve the minimization or constancy of states. ((adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Physics of the Impossible, by Michio Kaku, page 248.)

Entropy involves the maximization of states. (Any statistical mechanics textbook.)

1. Does one eventually overcome the other as time approaches infinity?

2. Could there be an oscillation between the number of decoherent and entropic states?

3. Is there a simple law of decoherence as there is a law of entropy?

4. Is spacetime evolving toward pure discretization?

5. Do quantum numbers decrease, remain constant, or increase in time?
